Default Table Assignment Question

We will be traveling on the Marina of the Seas with a party of 12. The dining facilities on the Voyager class ships are beautiful. Our last cruise on Navigator, we were placed at a table that was positioned toward the back of our level and we found it difficult to see and enjoy any of the entertainment that took place without getting up out of our seats.

Is it possible to select your table? Our travel agent told us to ask when we arrive at the ship. Any advice regarding this would be great.

Thanks Laura

The problem is there are no tables for 12 more in the center of the dining room. The larger tables are always going to be off to the side or back, where there's more room to deal with them, without clogging up areas.

If you were willing to switch to two talbes of 6 your agent can try and "request" tables in a specific area.

You can also speak to the Maitre d' after boarding. I need to be on sides of the dining room to minimize noise, and they will usually accomodate us. Go to the dining room early the day you board and ask to see where your table is. If you don't like location, ask for a change. Sometimes, they will put you on a list of requests if the ship is very full, but there are always others wanting something else, such as what you have. Sometimes takes until second night before it gets all sorted out. Good luck.

I agree with Kuki. Ask for two tables of six next to each other serviced by the same wait staff. Then you can sit in any combination in the two tables you like throughout the cruise. You might have a better chance of better tables that way.
